This event is the third and final of three expos planned for 2015, and is organised in collaboration with the Volunteer Task Force and the Joondalup Volunteer Resource Centre (JVRC) and the City of Joondalup.
This expo series marks the first time dedicated community volunteering expos have been held in WA with more than 30 clubs, groups and organisations hosting stalls to promote a range of volunteering opportunities within the City of Joondalup and the northern corridor of Perth.
Local volunteers can find out more about working in areas as diverse as one-off cultural events, gardening, adult-literacy tutoring, visiting isolated members of the community, photography and advocacy, plus many more.
The June and August expo's were a great success with over 450 attendees collectively, and it is expected that the final expo will be equally as popular.
